AUSTIN, TX – November 13, 2023 – NetRise, the company providing granular visibility into the world's Extended Internet of Things (XIoT) security problem — encompassing the modern firmware and software component security challenges of IT, OT, IoT, and other connected cyber-physical systems — today announced CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named NetRise to its 2023 Stellar Startups list in the Security category. This annual list, previously known as CRN Emerging Vendors, recognizes fast-rising technology manufacturers committed to delivering leading-edge solutions that propel innovation and growth in the IT channel.

Companies on the 2023 Stellar Startups list are all six years old or younger. They are selected across categories including artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), application development/DevOps, big data, business applications, cloud, data center, Internet of Things (IoT), networking/unified communications, security, and storage. 

In today’s world, organizations across the globe have devices running firmware — from routers, switches, and firewalls to MRI machines and satellites. NetRise is an industry-leading supply chain risk management and device security company that provides complete software bill of materials (SBOM) lifecycle management as well as firmware and software component analysis.

NetRise enables granular device security assessments for effective risk and vulnerability management and leverages machine learning and other proprietary methods to identify software components without access to source code. As a result, users can generate an SBOM regardless of the programming language in use and in cases where they may not have access to source code.
